At RHA Wales we believe that we deliver more than just housing. We believe that our holistic approach to work can ensure we build sustainable communities and improve the lives of those around us. To achieve this we recognise the need to invest in our communities.
We want to better understand our communities and the role we can play within the ‘Foundational Economy’ of south Wales. This is the everyday, yet essential economy employing an estimated 1 in 4 jobs in Wales.
It is said that this is often an overlooked and taken for granted part of our economy, but it’s really important for us to think about, as it involves the businesses and organisations that are truly rooted in their communities, the ones that can’t be moved abroad, here one minute and gone the next. The foundational economy is concerned with the very building blocks and cornerstones of our fantastic communities, such as our high street shops and small businesses.
Operating at the heart of our communities, we recognise that our success goes hand in hand with the success of those living in our communities.
We realise that by investing locally, we can help boost local business and increase employment opportunities for local residents– enabling our communities to become even stronger.
